Pytvshows is a python script for downloading .torrent files from trvrss.net or eztv.it. The configuration is very easy and pytvshows remembers the series you already watched.

== Configuration ==
 
 
 
Create a file named {{ic|.pytvshows.cfg}} in your home directory.
 
 
 
In this file you are going to fill in your series in this syntax for example south park:
 
 
 
#[South+Park]
 
  episode = x
 
  season = y
 
 
 
  [Dirty+Jobs]
 
  episode = 5
 
  season = 5
 
 
 
note that x and y are variables, you can fill in the season and episode number you already have watched like x = 14 & y = 12
 
also note that + means a whitespace, you must always add this symbol for a whitespace if you do not do that the script will not work.
 
 
 
== Running pytvshows ==
 
 
 
Now you can start running pytvshows by default the output directory is your ~/  you can change that:
 
#pytvshows --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/
 
 
 
For more options run:
 
#pytvshows --help
 
 
 
Let your bittorent client watch the directory where you download your torrents so they are automatically  added.
 
 
 
If you want to run pytvshows in the background, first make a bash script:
 
# #!/bin/bash
 
  echo -n “tvshows.sh - “; date # log current date & time
 
  pytvshows  --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/ --verbose >> ~/scripts/pytvshows.log
 
 
 
As you can see, log the output of pytvshows
 
 
 
Then add this script to cron:
 
#crontab -e (as normal user, using pytvshows as root is not recommended)
 
#30 * * * * /home/<user>/scripts/tvshows.sh
 
 
 
Please use a other time otherwise it will get to many hits at the same time.
